Fava Greens and Fava Beans

Sometimes I feel so incredibly small. Swallowed by the sea of information I attempt to swim in each day. The internet does that to me sometimes. Makes me feel even tinier in scope of the big picture.



I'm one of those types of people who keep turning around, mouth agape, ready to try something new that's caught my fancy. And yet, sometimes I don't feel like I'll ever master anything. I love sewing...but don't get around to it often. I love embroidery, but can't remember the last time I… Continue

Surviving 5 Kids and a Massage

Recently, I was given a gift certificate to a ritzy spa for my thirtieth birthday. For the past two months, I’ve held on to that little card with its elaborate curlicues, both enthralled and petrified by the idea of using it. As with…

Surviving 5 Kids and Their Imagination

When talking with any sane adult, one can reasonably expect a conversation consisting of a chain of statements stemming from a comparatively small bank of possibilities. One might not know, for example, exactly how one’s colleague will respond to a business proposal, but rest assured he most likely…

Ice Capade

We have an ice issue in our house.  It’s an issue that involves laziness, denial, blindness, stubbornness, and principle.

Surviving 5 Kids and Little League

 

It's baseball season, America's favorite pastime, which means ballpark hotdogs, ice cold beer and the roar of the crowd… unless you are the mom of Little Leaguer. Youth baseball consists more of bologna sandwiches, luke-warm juice boxes, and the roar of the kid sitting next to you. Another season of…

How to Slice a Watermelon Perfectly

On a hot summer day, there is nothing better than a cold, juicy, slice of watermelon!  I am pretty sure I could eat my weight in watermelon!  This past weekend, we went to a cookout at a friends house, and at the last minute, I decided to slice up the…

Photo Walk: The Waterfall

My journey into photography classes has come to an end.  Two straight months of assignments became a bit grueling, and I will admit I flaked a bit on the last week.  The final assignment, a sort of culmination of all that I have learned, was to take a photo walk and capture the moments and surroundings.  Exhausted, overwhelmed by switching to WordPress, and frustrated or not, I knew I had to make time for that one.  A tribute to my…

Alone vs Lonely (Part II)

While writing "All Alone" earlier this week, my fingers actually kept tap-tap-tapping away. And I looked up, and the sun had not only set, it was pitch dark outside. And a whole story had poured out. The post was so long I had to chop it in half, wrap up my thoughts and finish it in this post.



These past few months I've been thinking a lot about what "loneliness" and "being alone" are. 'Tis typical for me every…

Shewww...Last Week of School!

Oh, what a week it has been!  Last Friday, we found out that our 11 year old sheltie, Benny, has incurable cancer.   Sounds pretty bad, and it is, but we have decided to make the best of it and spoil him…

I Need A Drink!

Well, another Holiday and nothing, absolutely nothing but sitting in the ac,the three little one's are once again having an "I can't keep my hands to myself day", and me,  I'm writing. That's right, I decided I can not and will not play the part of 'playground' lady.  I missed out on too many activities itercepting fists, feet and toy cars and I've had it. I was enlightened by my 22 yo daughter who is my right hand man,…

Confessions of an Older Mom

Okay, so last week my sixth child was  successfully potty trained, right before he turned 3. The big deal? This was the 3rd attempt at it, my attempt; you see it's not that Adam failed the previous times, I his mother who trained 5 before him and had 3 trained by 2, was too tired to stick with the process. He's not the first child to be a delayed potty trainer, his 2 older sisters( my younger girls) were completely toilet…

Calgon; PLEASE Take Me Away( and don't bring me back)!!!

I am a Mom of all trades, though aren't we all? I believe those who we call family expect us to know it all and do it all, and heaven forbid if we don't, we will hear it. As a mom of so many, I am pulled into so many directions,I had no choice to self nick name myself; Scarecrow, I am 1 minute wiping the 2 and a half year old and a split second later I'm making a sandwich for the 5 yo or chasing a dog out of the bathroom, or tracking…

Diary of a Not So Perfect Mom

Any mom that states she is the perfect mom is fooling only herself. For you see, we never are perfect, in others eyes , and , sometimes by our own standards. I like to think I am, but I do so in hopes my children will follow my guidelines for parenting. That's not working. When you are up all night making a last minute costume for school, you think; "wow, I did it, I wanna see some other mom do this!", and it is done, some other mom,… Continue

Family secret

First of all I want to make something really clear:

CHICKEN PARMISAN

FETTUCCINI ALFREDO

MACCARONI CHEESE

DO NOT EXIST IN THE ITALIAN FOOD TRADITION.

 

They have not even been mentioned once.

If you do have anything that looks like an Italian passport, well...for sure, you have never heard of them.

Unless, of…

My Mother's Day

My Mother's Day this year was really wonderful, from beginning to end.  Even when I decided I would do the anti-Mother's Day thing and force my husband to join me in cleaning our downstairs from top to bottom at 8:30 at night; isn't Mother's Day all about not cleaning?  Well, since I never clean, I guess I just thought Mother's Day must be about Opposites Day or something.  JDubbs was a good sport about it, though, even if it was…
